Localization World Taxonomy

The organizers of Localization World have developed a localization taxonomy to help active participants as well as first-time visitors find their way around the world of localization. Issues are classified in three broad topics: Functions, Industries and Geographies. This classification is used both in the Localization World Network — where it will help you identify fellow travelers and network with others who share your interests — as well as in the Localization World program where each session is "tracked" according to the taxonomy.
